Red and yellow bouquet

While strolling Burien WA’s Art Walk last week, I saw this mixed blossom bouquet in such an unusual color scheme, sitting in front of a business.

Columbine in shadow

The columbines look very good this year. They respond very well to an acid fertilizer in the spring, and the flowers are big and plentiful. Here is one pretty one in a shaft of sunlight, with some rose campion in the foreground.

Red rose

My roses have begun. This year I used a better kind of fertilizer, with micro-nutrients, and am VERY happy with the results. Worth the money.
